Generac Power Systems, Inc. 10 Year (10C) Limited Warranty Extension for Residential and Commercial Standby Generators

Generac Power Systems, Inc. ("Generac") and purchaser hereby amend ("Amendment") the term of the original warranty for the generator ("Original Warranty") from the term stated in the Original Warranty to a term of ten (10) years or two-thousand (2,000) hours, whichever occurs first, in either case beginning on the original date of successful start-up and/or on-line activation of the generator ("Term Extension"). If purchaser's Original Warranty has already expired, this Amendment revives the Original Warranty and replaces its term with the Term Extension. This Amendment also amends warranty coverage in the Original Warranty to the coverage listed below for the duration of the Term Extension ("Coverage Extension"). The Coverage Extension shall not retroactively apply to cover any warranty work performed before the date of this Amendment. The warranty for the generator, as modified by this Amendment, is stated below in full (the "Amended Warranty").

For the period of warranty noted below, which begins (or began, whichever applicable) upon the successful start-up and/or on-line activation of the generator, Generac warrants that the generator is free from defects in material and workmanship for the items and periods set forth below. Generac will repair or replace, at its discretion, any part(s) which, upon evaluation, inspection, and testing by Generac or an Independent Authorized Service Dealer, is/are found to be defective. Any part(s) the purchaser claims to be defective must be evaluated by the nearest Independent Authorized Service Dealer. Emissions components are excluded from coverage under this warranty. Emissions warranty coverage is detailed in a separate emissions warranty.

Warranty Coverage: Warranty coverage period is for ten (10) years or two-thousand (2,000) hours, whichever occurs first, in either case beginning on the original date of successful start-up and/or on-line activation of the generator.
